Current Charity


ArtistsForCharity is currently donating to:

:bulletwhite: The Autistic Self Advocacy Network
    "Through our advocacy arm, we’ve made one of our top priorities supporting greater opportunities for autistic adults to live in the community. Our activists contributed to the development of the nation’s first Medicaid Waiver for autistic adults in Pennsylvania, providing funding for community living supports for up to two hundred adults on the autism spectrum. Furthermore, ASAN representatives serve on the New Jersey Olmstead Implementation and Planning Advisory Council, providing advice and oversight to New Jersey’s efforts to move adults with developmental disabilities of all kinds out of institutions and into the community. Through efforts such as these and others, we hope to promote a state of affairs where everyone will have the opportunity to live in the community and we can relegate the forced institutionalization of our people to the dustbin of history."
- Extract from a letter sent to us by Ari Ne'eman (ASAN Founding President)
